Brooklyn-based Cory Arcangel is a multimedia artist, programmer and musician, active in the nascent days of online 'net art'. For his latest and biggest project to-date, installed in the Barbican's Curve gallery and entitled 'Beat the Champ', Arcangel has installed 14 consoles playing continuous bowling games, with each controller modified by a microchip that ensures no pins are ever knocked down.
